5:01 am
pictures. here we go. this apparently is the pickup truck that crashed into the sound wall. i misspoke earlier. just a single vehicle. this vehicle is the one, clearly, you can see why the person did not survive this crash. in fact, cypress avenue goes purp perpendicular to moorpark. cypress, someone might have been driving down cypress into the sound wall. i don't know for sure. police are continuing the investigation. this the scene of the deadly crash. while you see hit the sound wall going up to 280, and presumably, it went straight up into the sound wall. that's the intersection closed. just off 280. but there's no off ramp there. in fact, i misspoke here. saratoga, that's the closest on and off ramp. that's a good distance away. freeway traffic and access is not affected, but lives are affected by this deadly crash near the monterey apartments so that short portion is closed through the one neighborhood. as we zoom out to the rest of the bay area, seeing the
5:02 am

we have been combing through newly released court documents overnight. pete suratos joins us in dublin at the jail where noor salman is being held. good morning, pete. >> good morning. as you mentioned, our newsroom has been working on this overnight, combing through the documents and it looks like or appears that noor salman could be heading to florida soon. now, in our latest information that we're getting, we know that she was in custody here at the santa rita jail in dublin, but it's unclear when she will be released. let's talk about exactly what's in the new court documents. in the paperwork filed yesterday, it shows that salmen waived her right to a scheduled removal hearing scheduled for next week on april 10th. what this means is she won't fight extradition to florida where further court proceedings will take place. it was just in march the federal judge in oakland ruled she could be released on a $500,000 bond, but that was later revoked by a
5:04 am
florida judge. salmon who grew up in the east bay was charged with her husband, omar mateen, the shooter who charge said, charged with aiding her husband, the shooter who killed dozens of people in the dudley pulse nightclub shooting in orlando. she was arrested in january of this year. as i mentioned, the latest information from our newsroom shows she is in custody here at the santa rita jail in dublin, but things could change with these new developments. we'll continue to monitor the situation and i'll have another update for you in the next hour. we're live in dublin. pete suratos for today in the bay. >> thank you very much. new this morning, the scene has now been cleared after a deadly crash. the chp says could have involved a wrong-way driver. this happened a little after 10:00 last night on westbound highway 84 in fremont at thornton avenue. there's the map showing you where this happened. one person died in the head-on crash. and another person suffered minor injuries. >> richmond police are on the hunt for this man, they say he
5:05 am
shot and killed his ex-girlfriend and it happened right in front of their two children. >> the man is considered armed and dangerous. the shooting was caught on video. police say yesterday morning, 43-year-old lawyer dashon mcbride pulled his car up next to his ex-girlfriend, franklin. that's when officers say mcbride opened fire and drove away. two of her sons were in the back seat. nbc bay area spoke exclusively to a woman driving a car right behind franklin's. >> i told him, hurry up, because i heard a shot. >> my heart is torn. i'm sorry. i'm broken. i'm trying to hold up for my daughter and my wife and stuff, but i'm asking everybody, if you're out there and you know him, please turn him in. >> mcbride was driving a 2007 silver four-door mercedes-benz s-550 with paper plates. a $2 million warrant is out for his arrest. >> at this hour, a growing memorial right now for the victim, and of course, for her family as we look at candles and

5:07 am
again been gassed in syria. >> horrifying events in syria. another issue that the trump administration is confronting is out of north korea. developing story there. we told you last night about north korea's latest ballistic missile launch. this coming after the u.s. and south korean militaries have been conducting joint drills. now, the secretary of state, rex tillerson, responded with what many are calling a terse statement. quote, north korea launched yet another intermediate range missile. the united states has spoken enough about north korea. close quote. >> it's 5:07 right now. happening today in oakland, some of the people who were forced out of their homes after this deadly fire may have to leave the temporary shelter they were staying in. the shelter is slated to close today. but the shelter was also supposed to close last week. but it was delayed. well, we'll find out what happens today. at last count, 11 survivors are still staying there. this morning, we're also learning the name of another victim killed in last week's
5:08 am
fire. the coroner's office says 41-year-old ashanti key wilson died in that four-alarm blaze. the third of four victims to be identified. >> the city of san jose is helping flood victims get back behind the wheel. the city has arranged for 20 cars to be donated to families affected by all of the coyote creek flooding. some of their cars are completely ruined. each year, san jose puts 150 to 200 cars out of service. most of the 20 cars are donated by -- or they are former patrol cars. the city will deliver five of the cars on monday. the rest will be given out over the next two months. >> and we are anticipating overall fairly nice day. over the next seven days, big changes coming and all in the form of wind and rain. another dry day today. 65, 66 in san francisco. by thursday night into friday morning, we start seeing the rain and winds picking up. friday being the stormiest of
5:09 am
them all. 58 degrees. the showers look like they will carry over into saturday, so unfortunately, if you had weekend plans, you may want to bring them indoors. over the next several days, we also notice a drop in temperatures because of the strong cold front that is expected to drop us down to 58 degrees by saturday, even in inland areas. 69 by tomorrow, but today, going to be about 77. so overall, the next seven days, big changes ahead. but today is going to be a pretty good one. let's get a check of traffic with mike. >> all right. we're going to start with the b.a.r.t. system. recovering from the earlier problems we had from sfo. maybe delays getting over for the first trains in to pittsburg and bay point. other than that, no problems reported. recovery mode there. an easy drive on the freeways. we continue to follow the deadly crash on moorpark at cypress and san jose. san jose police are following that, as are we. there's the tri-valley, the east bay. no delays for the freeways i just showed you and the travel times for the east bay and the bay bridge, just 15 minutes from

5:14 am
tracie potts live with her denial and where this investigation is headed next. good morning. >> good morning, yes, the issue here seems to be you ask the intelligence community to unmask or reveal the name of someone who was caught up in the surveillance, is that the same thing as leaking? susan rice says no and she did nothing wrong. >> i leaked nothing to nobody, and never have and never would. >> former obama national security adviser susan rice admits it's common to request names of americans caught up in surveillan surveillance, but she denies she leaked names of trump officials for political purposes and she rejects president trump's claims that his wired were tapped. >> that's false. >> swept up in the russian influence in the election. >> believe susan rice abused the system and did it for political purposes. >> it's something that warrants oversight and warrants her coming in and testifying.
5:15 am
>> the president retweeted an article about it. democrats insist the new focus on susan rice is a distraction. >> this is another wild-goose chase that the republicans are sending us on and the president in particular. it's not relevant. >> the latest development as two congressional investigations continue. >> tracie potts reporting from washington. in the meantime, a live look right now at the u.s. senate floor this morning where the democratic senator jeff merkley from oregon is staging his own protest in the run-up to the supreme court confirm vote for neil gorsuch. murkily is holding the floor as he has been doing since 7:00 last night. >> this is obviously a back and forth over the history of supreme court nominations. in the last year or so, part of the protest right now included mocking gop colleagues for their refusal to hold a vote on judge merrick garland. that dates back to president obama's administration.
5:16 am
murkily will continue to speak as long as he's physically able. >> in the meantime, in silicon valley, one of the most talked about start-up failed to make pay roll on time. >> nothing short of chilling news for that's employees. >> there are a lot of signs saying your company might be in trouble, but no bigger sign than payday comes, payday goes and you don't get paid. bloomberg is reporting that huge new start up leecoho missed pay for their employees. this was a huge company, going to make tvs and cell phones and even cars. bloomberg says paychecks due last friday, payday, didn't come in until yesterday. le eco tells bloomberg had it trouble moving money from china to the united states. they had planned a tech campus in san jose so big it was almost its own city. last fall, they held an apple-like unveiling of all its technology in an event in san

5:18 am
immigration agents sometimes ask americans, not visitors, but americans to unlock their phones for inspection. there is a push in congress to make those laws more clear. close the loopholes so the agents can't do that without a warrant. right now, yes, without a warrant and you're an american citizen, they can do it. you can try to refuse. >> exactly, but we have heard of many cases like that. people talking about it on social media. >> absolutely. thank you very much. right now, we want to talk about a team that is surging and right into the playoffs. steph curry and the warriors are rolling. we know because we're in april that the playoffs are getting close. talk of tickets is in the air. the ws looking good to head down the stretch. they have won 12 straight games. last night, they beat the tum r timberwolves. >> tickets go on sale today. at 2:00, the priority wait list, and after 2:00, more presale events tomorrow starting at 2:00

not stopping the campaign rhetoric from heating up right now. three leading democratic candidates seem to be emerging. gavin newsom, antonio villaraigosa, and john chong. yesterday, all three of them were speaking separately to members of a crime viver's group. >> turns out arrests are down at the mexican border and the head of homeland security said arrests for people illegally entering the u.s. plummeted in march. john kelly said arrests were down by 400,000 when compared to just the month before. kelly says this is due to president trump's approach to illegal immigration. it's almost quarter to 6:00. the u.s. customs department so far is declieping to say how many bids they received to build president trump's proposed border wall. yesterday was the deadline to submit a pitch and some contracting companies are talking about their ideas. one san diego company wants the wall to be a piece of art with stones and artifacts. another company thinks solar

panels would two purposes. or how about a deck with sweeping desert views? >> scott mcgrew has been examining the president's first 100 days in office. today, we're at day 76. >> and scott, this is the most important day so far of the presidency. good morning. >> good morning to you. two major crises. there will be bickering still in the white house. there's going to be investigations into the russian connection, but today, and in the next few days, we're going to see what the new president is made of, as he deals with a chemical attack in syria. another missile launch in north korea. both could cause the military reaction from the united states. in syria, a suspected nerve gas attack, we think by forces loyal to assad against families and children. we're showing you the video we can. there is video out there that left many of us in the newsroom absolutely speechless. it is awful stuff. the white house issued this statement today's chemical attack in syria against innocent people including women and children is reprehensible and
5:46 am
cannot be ignored by the civilized world. these heinous actions by the bashar al assad regime are a consequence of past administration's weaknesses and irresolution. president obama said in 2012 that he would establish a red line against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. the united states stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack. now, this is something we have never seen before. a white house issuing a statement in the name of one president that mentions a second past president. we can't think of another instance of this. it's also not clear from the statement what our policy is going to be. is the use of chemical weaponsing a line in this presidency? past statements from trump indicate he's against taking action. president obama, he wrote in 2013, do not attack syria. is a different tweet. where he talks about how the u.s. must stop taking in people
5:47 am
from syria. but he is definitely tweeted in the past about the tremendous downside. let's talk about the other issue, the missile launch by north korea. this is a ballistic missile launch. i want to be clear. this is video of a test by north korea. it is not yesterday's test. nonetheless, this comes just days before the trump/xi meeting in florida. and it is certainly aimed at disrupting that. the state department issued a statement on this one. this one's far more clear. let's take a look at that statement by the state department. secretary of state rex tillerson says north korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. the united states has spoken enough about north korea. the state department's statement doesn't have a lot of words, but certainly speaks paragraphs. no more negotiation. all options including military strikes on the table. guys, this aimed as much at china as north korea. we'll continue to watch this critical day in the white house.
5:48 am
>> very much so. thank you. >> thank you for that full breakdown. scott will be looking at president trump's tweets, executive othrders and speeches throughout the first 100 days in today in the bay. you can share your thoughts with scott. >> let's get now to a story that is causing a lot of talk this morning at a time when many people that racial injustice is rampant in this country. a new soda commercial starring fashion model kendall jenner getting quite the criticism. >> she's in a fashion shoot only to be distracted by a protest in the vein of black lives matter. she joins in on the protest and hands a police officer a can of pepsi. the police officer smiles and protesters hug. some critics call the ad tone deaf. pepsi is defending the ad, saying it has a global message. whether you're going to drink pepsi or not, whether you're going to go to outside lands, a lot of people bought the outside lands tickets without knowing who was going to perform.
5:49 am
>> they're not exactly cheap. almost $400. you have to buy the full three-day pass. here's the official poster showing the complete lineup. among the headliners, metallica, the who. we won't be fooled again. and a tribe called quest. three-day tickets go on sale this thursday starting at $375. >> they're pricey. >> that's three days. three days of. >> true. >> tribe called quest. >> a pretty good lineup. >> well -- >> i didn't get my $375 ticket. i'm going to have to save up for that one. >> i got your back. all right, but you know what else i have your back on. the weather. and kari gave me exclusive access to her weather closet. so i'm going to give you guys a peek of what you can expect in terms of the weather, and of course, what to wear. now, outside right now, we're
5:50 am
enjoying some clear skies in the south bay, but if we head on over to kari's weather clause, we can expect to see short sleeves for today. maybe a light hoodie, but it's going to be pretty hot. 77. i don't think you're going to need a sweater. not even at this hour. jeans definitely in place. maybe even some shorts since you're not going to be able to wear shorts over the nextal days with all that rain. which is why i also put in today's closet flip-flops, because nobody is going to be able to wear flip-flops in the mud, and if you do, well, then that's all you. baseball caps as well for today because by tomorrow, the winds will be picking up between 45 to 50-plus miles per hour. that baseball cap is going to fly away. don't wear your favorite cap tomorrow or through the weekend. just wear it for today. and put it away back in the weather closet. but as we expect to change over the next couple hours, you're also going to notice an increase in the temps into some very nice 60s and 70s. santa rosa, 73 degrees. napa, 73. oakland, 72. san francisco and half moon bay
5:51 am
will stick to the 60s, and inland areas will be the warmest, into the upper 70s. let's talk about that storm system that is expected to make its arrival as early as thursday. thursday, by about 6:00, the north bay, san francisco and the peninsula will start seeing some showers. and then by about 11:30, the winds will really start to pick up between 20 and 30-plus miles per hour. coming down with some heavy to moderate downs. by friday at about 4:00 a.m., unfortunately, mike, very busy because the early morn commute especially along the south bay are going to see some heavy, heavy rain, and very gusty winds. as of right now, becoming widespread by about 5:00. so by dinner time, bring it inside and safe travels if you're maybe doing some plans on friday night into saturday because that rain is expected to carry over into saturday morning through about 4:00. it looks like the winds will die down just in time for saturday evening. and then into sunday, which means if you have plans to head to tahoe, you want to pay
5:52 am
attention because we're also expecting a decent amount of snowfall as we head into friday. look at this, expected over 20 inches in twin bridges. tahoe city, over 13 inches. south lake tahoe, over 14 inches. definitely expecting stormy conditions and overall, expecting to issue a microclimate weather alert on friday. that's because of the gusty winds between 20 and 50-plus miles per hour which could cause downed trees and isolated flood concern. for now, i hope the roads are looking good, mike. >> so far, the freeways are looking good. except for fremont. we continue to follow this crash. just got an update from chp. they said there may be as many as six vehicles involved in the crash or at least have pulled over to the shoulder one time. you see all of this slowing now. before you get to southbound 880, jams up to about alto mall where the crash and debris remain in the two fast lanes, over to the right side. fortunately, that will not impede folks if you're taking the off ramp quite as heavily. that's south 880 at auto mall
5:53 am
parkway. we followed deadly crash in san jose at moorpark and cypress. the crew continues at the scene. it does not affect the on or off ramps at saratoga. pretty far from there, but it might affect your traffic into and out of monterey apartments right there by the scene. meanwhile, the rest of the south bay freeway shows a smooth drive. rr show this to you on the waze system a little slowing there, 101, north of 680. the waze indicates there may be actually a crash there. now, look at this route. 34 minutes for that route from 101. a much better vantage. almost ten minutes advantage if you take 85 from the same area from san jose to mountain view. you can dplet the same advantage by comparing your route before you hit the road or pull over for a midride break. go to the magnifying glass, go to your name, then the team name, benjamin agosto wazers. >> we have a new one, too.
